Takalani Sesame is the South African adaptation of the internationally acclaimed children’s educational media programme, Sesame Street, aimed at children aged 3 and 7.

Inspired to be a distinctly South African television, radio, digital (online and mobile), and community outreach programme; Takalani Sesame has been designed to support the reception year of South Africa’s national primary school curriculum.

We promote literacy, numeracy and basic life skills. Takalani Sesame endeavours to incorporate all of South Africa’s 11 official languages into the project’s various components.
